A stripped down Chardonnay from one of the oldest, most historic vineyards in Santa Barbra county (originally planted in 1971). Elegant, light, stony and saline, with a touch of classic Santa Maria Valley tropical fruit. The vineyard has sandy soils and receives constant cooling winds from the nearby Pacific. Sourced, picked and made with an eye for creating a pure expression of Chardonnay and the Santa Maria Valley.
Pair with oysters, sushi and ceviche, or poultry, veal or pasta in white sauces.
Stainless steel fermented and aged, full ML (but vibrant none the less!), very gentle fining, unfiltered, 12% abv. Vines planted by the great Ken Brown!
